Earth Day

Here at Go Auto, we take great pride in the early progress we've made and our ongoing efforts to pave the way for a greener future.

In 2021, we embarked on our inaugural sustainability measurement and reporting process, marking the beginning of a transparent evaluation of our environmental footprint. Through this initiative, we established a valuable partnership with Green Economy Canada, a prominent organization dedicated to fostering sustainability among local businesses.

We're actively pursuing various initiatives to realize this ambitious goal. Here's a glimpse of what we've achieved and what lies ahead:

  • Investment in Electrification: We're electrifying our entire dealership network, significantly reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.
  • EV Charging Infrastructure: With over 100 EV charging stations installed at 44 facilities, we're making sustainable transportation more accessible.
  • LED Lighting Overhaul: Across our 60+ locations, we're transitioning to low-power LED lighting systems and implementing automated management, resulting in substantial reductions in energy consumption.
  • Water Conservation: Innovative solutions in our wash bays minimize water usage, contributing to broader conservation efforts.
  • Infrastructure for Solar Panels: We're laying the groundwork for integrating renewable energy sources by providing infrastructure for future solar panel installations.

In 2022, our total greenhouse gas emissions amounted to 29,573 tCO2e, representing a slight decrease of 0.3% from our base year of 2021. Since transitioning to LED lighting, we've observed a notable 7% decrease in electricity emissions, underscoring the positive impact of our operational upgrades.

As we commemorate Earth Day, let's reaffirm our dedication to environmental stewardship and collective action. Together, we can continue making meaningful strides toward a sustainable future for generations.
